They don't forbid additives as a blanket statement. BeVo says secondary additives are not cost effective or generally necessary.

BeVo lists Grotamar as a biocide which is only available in Europe to my knowledge.

As Midwestdrifter indicated, there are many good quality tried and true commercial additives available, but they are not on the BeVo list. Most boating sites will have reviews to help selection.
